  1. DD needs a leotard for a Cecchetti competition - I know from another mum that there are strict rules about leotards but last time she was in a group so I just put her in what everyone else was wearing and didn’t have to worry. Is there a list of the rules, or the right type of leotards? From memory it was tank style, quite high necked, with a belt - is that what I need to look for? Do they have rules on colours? I’d be really grateful if anyone can point me to a list of the rules or of the allowed leotards, googling has not been much help.
  2. I’ve been googling but can’t seem to find the answer - how do the Cecchetti ballet grades compare to the better known ones like ISTD and RAD. I know they cover different things, but I just wanted to know roughly which grades were equivalent to each other.
  3. Hi I’m looking to buy the ISTD imperial ballet dvd for Advanced 1 & Advanced 2 and the Cecchetti DVD for Advanced 1 & Advanced 2 Ballet..if anybody has either of these to sell I would be very grateful😊
  4. I'm looking for a teacher who would provide private coaching as a complement to my dd's syllabus Grade 3/Standard 4 class. Her teacher is going away for the summer and is currently unable to provide private classes. We're in Milton Keynes, but could get to either London or Birmingham or anything along the train line between Euston and Birmingham. Oxford may also be a possibility. Also, I would like some advice on what to do when a beloved teacher suddenly seems to lose interest, despite the good results in exams and competitions. After a year of inspiring collaboration, she seems to have found a new favourite and, while she teaches well whenever lessons happen, she seems less than willing to continue to provide the support to achieve the goals she herself set for my dd to have a chance to get into a vocational school in Y6 (she's currently finishing Y4). Dd has noticed it too, so her confidence levels are dropping. I'm feeling a bit stuck.
  5. Does anyone's child do this? My DD has decided she is very serious about her ballet training and is already a RBS JA but has heard about the Cecchetti scheme. It's only about half hour drive from us in the North. Will it compliment her RB training or confuse her? I have no idea about the different styles of training so don't know if it will be a help or hindrence to her. It seems good that she also gets to do a second dance subject too, and it's only once a month.
  6. My dd will be unable to attend the actual associates auditions in Newport due to other commitments however they were very kind to allow her to join in an associates class on the 5th and use that as an audition. I am so proud of my dd. Not only did she go to a new area (2 hours away from home), but she joined in an established class knowing absolutely no one even through the children knew each other. On top of this, that class happened to be one that parents could watch so not only did she go to a new place, in a class where she knew no one but she did the entire class in front all the parents of the children attending too. Unfortunately I was unable to stay and watch as I had my other children with me but I did catch a little of the Russian style dance at the end and dd looked like she was having so much fun. They performed the Russian dance in groups of 3 at the end and she got up and did it with such a sparkle in her eyes. Dd came out so excited after the class and told me animatedly about everything. She was even excited about the one correction she had in the ballet section. She loves ballet but this was a new excitedness. Regardless of whether she's made it or not, she has had the best experience and loved every minute of it and I am so proud of her for even doing it.
  7. By the recommendation of my dance teacher, I am off to audition for Cecchetti Associates in the next couple of months. I was wondering if anyone had any idea what these auditions entail? Is it just a normal ballet class? I will be auditioning at Senior level, is there any Pointework? Also, just some general information about the scheme. What are the faculty like? The quality of the classes etc. and approximately how many people get places? Just looking for someone with experience really, as I had no idea about it until recently!
  8. Hi, Does anyone have any experience of the ISTD/Cechetti DDI qualification? I'd like to study for it through distance learning, but don't really know much about it! Thankyou x
  9. Is anyone going to this or has been in the past? My daughter is going, she is 14 and we would welcome any tips or info. Thanks
  10. Has anyone heard of or been to the Cecchetti summer school that runs at Elmhurst? If so is it any good? My daughter only studies RAD but I thought it might be beneficial to learn from different techniques? Thank you ????
